Some people might say those only those with substantial assets should make a Will, but we suggest that you make your first will as soon as you are eligible, irrespective of your assets. An eligible Will maker must simply:
- be over the age of 18 years old;
- not be under duress or subject to coercion; and
- be mentally capable at the time of making and signing the will and understand its nature and effect.
You should also consider making a Will if you marry or enter a de facto relationship, if you buy a house, if you have children or if you come into an inheritance, receive unexpected money, or have any significant life change.
